We've just made the shortlist for the Northern Digital Awards 2016, in the Best Ecommerce Website category! The nomination recognises our web design and development work for national online jewellery retailer The Jewel Hut, a part of T. H. Baker group.

“Thanks to our ongoing development partnership with Nublue we are on the verge of something quite new and exciting for The Jewel Hut,” says Kam Reehal, Web Manager at our client The Jewel Hut. “We can rest assured that Nublue will lend their expertise to our ecommerce tools and tailored hosting to enable our business to continue to grow.”

Created by Prolific North and Don’t Panic Event Management, The Northern Digital Awards shine the spotlight on the North’s foremost talent in digital marketing. The winners will be announced during the awards ceremony, which takes place at the Royal Armouries in Leeds on 28th January 2016.

We’ve been shortlisted in the Best Ecommerce Website category, and we’re sharing the list with a number of household names in a range of awards categories – including ITV Studios, MAOAM, LateRooms, BMI Healthcare and Expedia Media Solutions. This year’s judges include Andy Barke, Industry Head of Google UK; Neil Costello, Head of Marketing at Aviva; and Paul Morris, Head of Digital and Social Media at The Co-operative Group.

Yesterday social media was buzzing in the wake of the shortlist announcements, with #NorthernDigitalAwards attracting a fresh wave of Twitter activity – following on from the awards’ judging phase on 8th December, its candidate entry deadline on 13th November, and the 2016 awards’ initial announcement back on 3rd August.

“Winning Best Ecommerce Website would really create the perfect start for the Nublue team’s second decade in business,” says Michael Ashworth, Nublue MD. “The team have worked incredibly hard to achieve some truly first-class results for T.H. Baker and The Jewel Hut, and our client has really commended us in terms of what we’ve done for their site and its user statistics. If anyone deserves to win this award, I think it’s our team. Winning this award would really demonstrate to the region as a whole that we’re delivering world-class results for national and international brands, right from the heart of Lancashire.”

We can’t wait for the ceremony on 28th January to find out if we’ve won the award – wish us luck!
